As irony would have it, my first full-day event after giving birth to my second child was a Le Leche League International event! LLL is an amazing organization dedicated to supporting women as they breastfeed, promoting community and education so mothers can give their wee ones a nutritious start at life. Speakers assembled at the downtown Chicago Westin from around the country to talk about ideas and techniques in child nurture, followed by the organization’s 60th anniversary celebration gala!
The organizers were amazingly accommodating to my unique circumstance, offering me breaks every couple hours and a private space for pumping. Of all the events in all the world, this was the perfect (and totally random) pairing for a mama with a new baby at home. Enjoy some photos from this great event!
